  1. 3rd Party Patching

    Integration for SCUP 2011 is there but this hasn't been updated for some time. Without the use of additional licensed software its basically impossible to patch 3rd Party products such as firefox, chrome, iTunes, Java. New application versions need to be created and distributed each time. An OOB method for 3rd party patching would be a godsend

  2. Sharepoint

    Please, do you have an answer for the below questions? Or, can you point me to the Group that could answer these?

    Customer wants to patch the Sharepoint farm through SCCM without manually intervening on the servers for this. I told him this is by design and that the Updates tagged with “farm deployment” are not listed in SCCM, because they specifically require User Intervention. The reason for not showing SharePoint Farm Updates in SCCM is due to the update behavior of Sharepoint. a farm update is installed on 1 of the servers and manually distributed over all other servers…

    This suggestion was flagged for moderation which brought it to my attention. I’ve cleared the moderation flag, but I am also going to close this out and return votes back to supporters.

    It reads to me like you need some collaborative assistance with other members of the Configuration Manager community, and this is really not what UserVoice is designed for. UserVoice is meant to be a platform for providing suggestions and feedback to the Configuration Manager product group.

    A good starting point for these questions would be the TechNet forums at: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?category=ConfigMgrCB

  3. Add Specific Permissions for Managing 3rd Party Updates

    I would like to see specific permissions for adding/managing a 3rd party software update custom catalog as well as a specific permission to "Publish third-party software update content".

    In our multi-tenancy ConfigMgr environment we have lots of different organizations using the same instance and being able to limit this functionality to just the top-level administrators will prevent hundreds if not thousands of unnecessary updates from being published.

  4. SCCM client scheduled restart can be canceled by user using shutdown /a

    Normal user is able to cancel scheduled restart of Windows OS defined by SCCM client policy.
    SCCM client should invoke restart of target machine at the specific time - do not schedule it earlier. Currently restart can be cancelled by normal user (without elevated permissions) using: shutdown /a
    and thus prevents planned patching process

    Shutdown orchestration is controlled by Windows and by default the policy on Client operating system SKUs is to allow the “Users” group control over shutdown actions. This behavior can be modified through group policy as appropriate for your environment.

    For more details, please see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/security-policy-settings/shut-down-the-system.

  5. Identical to the anti-malware policy, configure DirectAccess clients to have the option to download security updates/fixes from Microsoft.

    Identical to the anti-malware policy, configure DirectAccess clients to have the option to download security updates/fixes from Microsoft. This will remove the need to have a cloud DP or CMG be configured just to have the DA clients be updated with security fixes/patches. If this can be tagged against a boundary group or collection that will be great!
